A Sunday school teacher asked the children in her class, “If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would I get into Heaven?”

“No!” the children all answered.

“If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would I get into Heaven?”

Again the answer was “No!”

“Well”, she continued, “then how can I get into Heaven?”

A five-year-old boy shouted out, “You gotta be dead!”

Taking those first shaky steps . . . all creatures great and small.

Philippians 4:12-13  ( A section of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi)

New International Version (NIV)

12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury, Kent

The cathedral’s first archbishop was St. Augustine of Canterbury, previously abbot of St. Andrew’s Benedictine Abbey in Rome.

He was sent by Pope Gregory the Great in 597 as a missionary to the Anglo-Saxons. Augustine founded the cathedral in 602 and dedicated it to St. Saviour.

Archaeological investigations under the nave floor in 1993 revealed the foundations of the original Saxon cathedral, which had been built across a former Roman road.
